Need Advice...Movelita

I know there are entries on packing a few lolita things, but I have a biiigger question and would like advice from egl.

I will be moving to Washington next month from Alaska (yay washington+oregon lolitas!). I plan on bringing alllll of my lolita stuff with me and 98% of it is brand. I really don't want to risk losing any of it (since it's been so hard for me to accumulate some things I have + it's expensive duh), so I'm trying to figure out the most efficient way to get all of it there.

1) I was considering bringing it in a carry on with me or finding some way for me to bring it on the plane so I am always aware of it at all times, but I don't think that'll happen now 'cause my collection is growing a bit large (8 jsks/op, 2 blouses, bunny-ear mantle, etc.).
2) Another option I considered was mailing it to myself down there and extra insuring it, but I don't know if I could even risk that. I've never had anything valuable go missing in the mail, but I don't know if I could trust the post service not to get something spilled on it.
3) And probably my last choice of all would be packing it in a suitcase...I've had stuff go missing for like a week or more, and there is nooo way I am going to possibly allow that to happen--even if it is a non-stop flight.

How would you go about moving all your stuff with you? Of the three what would you pick? Or do you think there's a better way it could be done?

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Except driving through Canada is not an option lol.
